Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby announced on Thursday that a grand jury has indicted all six officers involved in the arrest of 25-year-old Freddie Gray earlier this year.

The six officers — Alicia White, Brian Rice, William Porter, Edward Nero, Garrett Miller, and Caesar Goodson — face charges including assault, manslaughter and various types of misconduct in office in connection with the death of Gray after he was taken into custody. His death was later determined to be a homicide.

Mosby took no questions following her announcement, but added that the officers will be arraigned on July 2.

Goodson faces the most charges: one count of second-degree “depraved heart murder;” one count of manslaughter; two counts of manslaughter by vehicle; one count apiece of second-degree assault, misconduct in office and reckless endangerment.

Rice is charged with involuntary manslaughter; two counts of misconduct in office; and one count each of reckless endangerment and second-degree assault. The Guardian reported earlier this month that Rice has been accused in the past of both threatening to kill his ex-girlfriend and threatening subordinates if they did not arrest her husband.

Porter and White are both charged with involuntary manslaughter; misconduct in office; second-degree assault; and reckless endangerment.

Ben Carson is Donald Trump’s faulty human shield against accusations of racism

Published

on

Ben Carson is back in the news — after another long absence — because Donald Trump has once again been accused of racism.

This article originally appeared at Salon.

The secretary of Housing and Urban Development is the only African-American member of the president’s Cabinet, and is often trotted out to clean up after Trump makes a mess too obviously problematic for the media to ignore.
